Netflix has unveiled 41 Indian titles for 2021 (and possibly beyond), and they are packed with enough names that there's something to delight everyone. They star the likes of Sonakshi Sinha, Taapsee Pannu, Jitendra Kumar, Nushrratt Bharuccha, Konkona Sen Sharma, Aditi Rao Hydari, Shefali Shah, Bobby Deol, Arjun Rampal, Vikrant Massey, Kartik Aaryan, Dhanush, Sanya Malhotra, Neena Gupta, Arjun Kapoor, Mithila Palkar, Raveena Tandon, R. Madhavan, Kapil Sharma, Manoj Bajpayee, Kay Kay Menon, Shweta Tripathi, Madhuri Dixit Nene, Ali Fazal, Sakshi Tanwar, and John Abraham. And they come from the minds of Mani Ratnam, Neeraj Ghaywan, Abhishek Chaubey, Vikramaditya Motwane, Anushka Sharma, Imtiaz Ali, Ram Madhvani, Ekta Kapoor, Alankrita Shrivastava, Abbas-Mustan, and Ronnie Screwvala among others.

Karan Johar's Dharmatic (the digital arm of Dharma Productions) is the most common fixture in Netflix's new slate with five projects in total across the board. Other major production houses include Viacom18 Studios, Anil Ambani's Reliance Entertainment, Screwvala's RSVP, T-Series, Lionsgate, Ekta's Balaji Telefilms, Anushka's Clean Slate Films, Endemol Shine, Condé Nast India, Vice Media, India Today, and AwesomenessTV.

This is the biggest slate Netflix has announced in one go from India, and insiders say that more original content will be announced throughout 2021. For now, the 41 new titles are already more than what Netflix India has released in years past. In 2020, Netflix released 31 Indian titles, including 10 series, 16 movies, and five comedy specials. That was the product of a Rs. 3,000 crores (about $420 million) investment that Netflix CEO Reed Hastings had announced when he visited New Delhi in late 2019. Netflix didn't provide a new number at the See What's Next India event on Wednesday.

Here's how the 41 Netflix Indian originals pan out: there are 13 movies, 15 scripted series, six stand-up comedy specials, four documentaries, and three reality TV shows. That's a lot to parse through, which is why we've divided all of it in neat lists below that you can quickly parse through.
